Ravelo A, Myers K, Brumble R, Bussberg C, Koffman B, Manzoor BS, Biondo JML, Mansfield C. Patient preferences for chronic lymphocytic leukemia treatments: a discrete-choice experiment. Future Oncol. 2024 May 22;1-12. doi: 10.1080/14796694.2024.2348440

AIM: Patient preferences for the features of targeted chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) therapies may differ.

MATERIALS & METHODS: A discrete-choice experiment (DCE) survey was administered to 229 respondents recruited through the CLL Society.

RESULTS: Respondents placed most importance on increasing the chance of progression-free survival (PFS) at 2 years from 70 to 90% and confirming results with measurable residual disease (MRD) testing instead of routine testing. Respondents also preferred daily oral administration over intravenous infusion every 4 weeks, fixed-duration treatments over treat-to-progression treatments and treatments with lower side effect risks. Reducing risk of tumor lysis syndrome was least important relative to changes in other attributes.

CONCLUSION: The combination of improving PFS combined with confirming results using MRD testing was more important than changes in all other study attributes included in the DCE. Results from this study can help inform shared decision-making when selecting therapies for CLL.
